About the LMP

Welcome to the Lattimer Massacre Project. The Project is a collaborative endeavor which aims to recognize the historic events surrounding the Lattimer Massacre, a tragic incident that changed the labor movement and impacted the world by bringing to light economic disparities and ethnic tensions in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania.

This is a way for the public to make the Lattimer Massacre recognized by national and international audiences, through contributions from all the communities involved. We welcome photos, stories, history, maps, website links and anything else you would like to add to the Lattimer Massacre story, relaying to the broader public its place in history.

    I am working on a local history project and would like permission to use some of the newspaper pictures in the DVD. How do I get permission?

    Thanks for your help,

    Clark Switzer

      Clark, you are welcome to have permission. You can email the project (LattimerMassacreProject@gmail.com) and we can write you a reply giving offical permission. Will this work?

      Just curious, what is your project about? I love to hear about other projects dealing with labor. You can find more photos of the project and environs on our flickr page.

    I am working on genealogy of my family and relatives from small Ruthenian village in Slovak called Valaskovce. Some of them immigrated to PA and worked in coal industry. I am wandering weather they were involved in Lattimer massacre. Please, is there any list of names of death miners? Thanks.

    This sounds like a fascinating project. Please tell me what you find out.

    There were many hundreds of marchers. Of these there were also many wounded. There are no lists of these. I will send you the list of the slain that we have, numbering about twenty. Many of these are buried in cemeteries in Hazleton.

    I am really fascinated with the international connections families maintained after migrating. If you have any family histories of this we would love to hear about it!
